Korean Students

As part of the Australian Governments New Colombo Plan 2017 five UNSW Korean Studies students were placed at partner universities for a semester of study and a one-week field trip to industrial and cultural sites.

The five students had a great opportunity, deepening their understanding of South Korea's cultural, historical and industrial developments. They visited cultural sites such as the Korea National Museum and the old capital city of one of Korea's kingdoms, historical places such as Independence Hall, and industrial sites such as Samsung Electronics complex, Hyundai Heavy Industries (with the world's largest shipyard) and POSCO (one of the world's largest steel maker, importing 76% of their iron ore from Australia)

Korean Students: Stephanie Figoli, Curtis Sonter, Ria Chatterjee, Pritha Barai and Kristy WT Ng.
